Prediction for the NBA match December 25, 2019: Golden State will accept Houston as an outsider, as the Warriors continue to speak without their leaders, and we have prepared a forecast for this meeting. Should I wait for the rout?
Golden State Warriors 7-24 (14-16-1 ATS)
“Warriors” can’t get out of the pivotal venue of the Western Conference, although the last two meetings have been pretty good. Steve Kerr’s team replaced New Orleans (106-102) and then beat Minnesota (113-104).
Of course, this is not enough to talk about the return of the Golden State to the system, especially without Stephen Curry and Clay Thompson. It will be very interesting to watch the Warriors as soon as the leaders recover, because the main goal of the championship is now getting into the playoffs.
Houston Rockets 21-9 (15-15 ATS)
The Rockets have everything in order, because the team claims to be the second line of the Western Conference, where the competition is simply sky-high. The Michael D’Antoni team does not force events, but calmly continues to carry out its work.
It is worth noting that Russell Westbrook’s game has become less selfish in relation to teammates, as there is one reason for this – James Harden, around whom everything is built. Houston looks great in guest matches, so the bookmakers were not mistaken when they gave the status of a clear favorite to the “rockets”.
- In the last five personal games, Houston won three times.
- The Rockets do not lose away for six matches.
- Since the start of the season, the Warriors have won four victories in the home arena.
Rockets vs Warriors Prediction
It seems that the Golden State has made some progress and may well be resisting the Houston Rockets. But, without its leaders, the Golden State will be extremely difficult to compete with the motivated Houston, which is even more so now in good shape. In our opinion, Russell Westbrook and James Harden will easily figure out the opponent’s defense and the bet on the confident victory of the Rockets will pass.
